Nationals vs Diamondbacks MLB Duel in The Desert

Nationals vs Diamondbacks MLB Duel in The Desert

Nationals are beginning to back up preseason World Series chalk status

It’s taken a while, but Washington is finally playing like the MLB contenders many baseball pundits thought they would be. The Nationals, sporting a 7-13 record back on April 27 and 4.5 games behind the Mets sat last overall in the NL East. Thanks to a dominating 11-2 recent run, by a whopping 83-46 margin, Washington has jumped into second and the Nats are just 2.5 games behind New York. 

Diamondbacks are living up to their lowly expectations in the NL West

Difficult to roll with the likes of Los Angeles, Arizona has to be sensing a level of desperation as the Diamondbacks have slipped seven games behind the Dodgers in the NL West. Though they have been more competitive then their preseason 100/1 World Series line suggests, it’s going to be a long summer in the desert. Arizona is on a 6-10 recent run and were crushed 11-1 in the series opener last night. 

Arizona vs Washington MLB Prediction: Following his last start, that ended after three innings ended due to shoulder stiffness, RHP Stephen Strasburg (2-3 ERA 4.73) skipped a day in the rotation but gets the start here. Fresh off a seven inning gem (3 hits 0 runs 7 strikeouts) against the Padres, Rubby De La Rosa (3-2 ERA 4.38) heads to the hill for Arizona. More confident in the hot Washington bats, we are backing the Nationals with 300 unit wager on the money line odds posted at Bovada.
